An Australian man convicted of murdering a Hells Angel gang member was set to open a secretive underground fight club in Pattaya.

 

Antonio Bagnato, who was given the death sentence by Pattaya Court after being found guilty the murder of Wayne Schneider in resort town in 2015 was set to open an overseas chapter of the secretive St Michael’s Fight Club, which originates from Sydney and reportedly has longstanding links to criminals and organised crime.

 

At an inquest into the death of Schneider, Bagnato was this week described as the ‘pin up boy’ for the fight club.

 

According to the Daily Telegraph, a number of Bagnato’s associates have revealed he planed to set up an overseas branch of the club in Thailand.

 

Witness Douglas Shoebridge told the Telegraph how he was contacted via Facebook and warned not to talk about the club in Thailand.

 

“I was advised don’t speak about St Michael’ Fight Club being in Thailand — if you do harm will come to your family and your children.

 

“My understanding of the club that it was just a fight club, with fighters and people who work out in gyms.

 

“I didn’t think anything sinister but later found out after Schneider’s murder it was um not only a fight club, it was involved in other things, underworld figures and drugs and stuff like that.’’

 

In February, Bagnato, 28 was handed the death sentence for the murder of Wayne Schneider, 37, and is currently being held in Bangkwang Prison, known as the Bangkok Hilton.

 

Police say that Bagnato was the ringleader of a group of men who kidnapped Schneider from his villa in the Pratumnak area of Pattaya in November 2015.

 

Earlier this week, an inquest held in Sydney heard how Schneider died after suffering a blunt force injury to the head.

 

The inquest revealed how Schneider was tied to chair and assaulted with a metal baton and knuckle dusters.

 

His naked body was found two days later in a shallow grave in Sattahip province.

 

Schneider, who was once a ‘most wanted’ criminal in New South Wales, had been described as one of Australia biggest importers of illegal drugs.

 

The news comes after Tourist Police this week announced the arrest of three Australians and a Canadian who were members of the Hells Angels biker gangs and who police said had links to the murder of Wayne Schneider.

 

Piyapong Ensarn of the Pattaya Tourist Police said a British member of the gang had already fled the country but that officers were searching for three other Australians who were believed to be hiding in Bangkok.
